Eliot-Hine’s new GrowLab, indoor garden, was funded as part of an OSSE Farm Field TripGrant. The purpose of this grant is to increase the number of District students who visit local farms. Students helped plant the milkweed seeds, water them consistently, and track their progress. Then in April, 6th and 7th grade students will take a field trip to Hard Bargain Farm in Accokeek, MD. Also as a part of the grant, Eliot-Hine’s required follow-up activity will be installing a pollinator garden. Everyone is invited to this April 1st Pollinator Garden Installation event. Join Eliot-Hine as they continue to infuse science and sustainability in fun and productive ways!
Eliot-Hine Middle School has a very exciting April 1st event planned for current families, prospective families, and anyone who would like to join from the community! From a grant the Junk Art Club won earlier this year, a pollinator garden will be installed on Saturday, April 1st from 9 AM – 12 PM. There will also be a variety of art projects available for all ages, including painting hubcaps to decorate the fences. This is also an opportunity for current and prospective families to re-enroll/enroll their student on-site. Staff and current parents will also be present to share more about the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme.
